    TY,,with all thing being to scale the rigs match the lures.
    the rods are built to sling large lures without being taxed.
    most times I don't have to swing hard but,if I have to I can and not worry about being too close to the limit.
    for the most part I fish LDP style,,throw it as far out across or along the rips as possible and let it ride the tide waay out,engage the reel and slow roll it back.
    can cover a mile of water in a nights fishing.


    this fish was taken in the manner I described with a very large swimmer.

    Nothing like making something with your hands and fooling a wild creature to smash it. Cool.

    that is very true and it never gets old.
    I always smile when someone tells me or shows me a shot of a fish they caught with my work.
    wish I could see others making their own here but,it seems that almost none do.

    yes it was,unfortunetly it did not work correctly,the builder found that it's head was too narrow and would not allow it to grab the water right.
    he is building another one for me like this one in the same color.

    I only fish rivers,no more beaches for about 25 years now.
    squid do sow up at times and we always know when because the fish would leave the rivers and go outside to gorge on them,,they seem to know when they show up,prolly by smell.
    they don't show up in any regular fashion,it can be at any time during the season.

    Wood darters are funny. It seems like you have to have a lot of big water or current for them to dig in. Love the smaller ones like the mag darters though. thanks for sharing.

    yes they can be,if not proportioned correctly.
    the one in question looked odd to me when I opened the box,my first thought was that it would not perform right but,then I said I don't know much about building one so,maybe I could be wrong.
    seems I was dead on.
    the wood darters need to have a head that's wide enough to grab the water or they will not dart.
    the one in question does not.

    I built these to dig deep when the fish are holding down low.
    esp for 3 spots I know of where one can fish on a low bridge,they dig down perfectly.
    let them ride the tide waay out then slow roll them home or half way then repeat.
    has worked great for me using the creek chubb giant pikies and rebel's large sliver.
